Thanks Liam.

Just had a reply which is a kinda good sign he's not running away. But he's adamant he's had it since he was a kid but I've explained everything about them to him and he seems hurt and offended by what I say.

Still waiting to see if he's going to accpet my return and refund me. :(

He is posing as a newbie buying beaters, however he is a scammer and has fucked over a well respected member of the community.


I hope that this who sold this one right here is another Mr Mego ... can anyone confirm?

Another scam artist, this is so obvious if you know a thing or two about baggies, but someone just getting in to collecting them could be taken for an expensive ride -

http://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-star-wa ... 500wt_1288

The white print baggies are SW-a style & only came with the first figures, so WTF is a removable limb 3P0 doing it it??, & judging by the price tag the seller knows what they are up to :evil:

As a follow up to my enquiry: That Mr Mego I've dealt with on eBay is no scammer. In fact dealing with him is highly recommended.

Hey Fella's, A follow up from my post in the Value Request section. Ebay name department_of_house

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/150710952791 ... 1439.l2649

This bloke's little scam is listing a vintage boxed B-wing complete with a pic of a vintage box for a price you have to jump at. He then avoids the question regarding the item being the same as the picture in the listing.

I asked him several times and he kept saying stuff like yes the box has not been opened thanks for your payment. Finally I demanded he tell me if it is the vintage or the modern version to which he finally replied it was the modern. SCAMMER!

Took 7 days to get my refund and it finally came through today.

Block him and certainly don't buy from him, he has sold a fair amount of vintage so beware.

I also did some history checking and found he has sold this exact same item 3 times now, so either two other people have been dudded or they clued on and went through the same BS I did.
See Ya!

This guy is now no longer a registered user. Ebay actually did something for once. Victory to the genuine sellers and buyers I think!!

This is quite an obvious one (but just in case), the bubble has been opened.

For some reason the seller hasn't mentioned it in the listing. :roll:
